Extraordinary Everyday

jane-lurieMy Featured Blogger this week is Jane Lurie, a California-based photographer with not just skill, but an unduplicatable gift: Jane has an Eye, one that can see what others can’t, even in the mundane, as evidenced by this collection of “Extraordinary Everyday” images. It may take a moment to process some of these pictures, but that’s a good thing. Like a gifted writer, Jane creates photos with layers and subtext. Enjoy!

β€œWhen we separate our artistic activity from daily life, we cut ourselves off from our most valuable creative resource.Β 

However, if we live life as an art form in itself, we have available to us all that we experience and see.”

    Wow! What an amazing gift! All these images are incredible, forcing me to slow down and really drink them in, one at a time. But for some reason I was completely arrested by “Rock and Window.” Mind blowing!

      Thank you, Russ! I really appreciate it. That rock was in my building’s garage window and I always admired it and finally photographed it. Soon after, someone took the rock. Sad. I was so glad to have documented this extraordinary everyday scene. πŸ™‚

    terrific images: I love ‘Blind Ambition’, partly because of its clever caption and the zig zaggy lines on the stone steps. I’m a follower πŸ™‚

    I enjoyed the images Jane. I wrote something to almost all of them. I liked them all. They were very interesting. You definitely have an eye for the unusual. I particularly lke Blind Ambition as well, because of the title. Great work.

    Thanks Mitch for sharing. πŸ“·πŸ“Έ

  7. The fork is my own favorite among these mundane miracles.  Increased sensitivity to such things is a partial consolation for the limitations of getting old.
